Garage Motion sensor programming challenge

Cupertino, April 25, 2020

So I have a Wemo light switch in my garage, this is an older switch that uses the Wemo bridge. I have an Onvis motion sensor hanging. My goal was to notice the movement if we enter the garage from the house or if any of the doors of our garage open. I found that the sensor does not lift if I entered the garage, so I moved it forward, but with the viewing angle you can not get the garage doors. So I may need another sensor or the installation of a camera (which I intend to do).

However, my real question is scheduling. The sensor triggers the light switch OK and I set it to stay on for 5 minutes. My problem is that if I work in the garage and I don't think it stops. Even if you press the light switch button, it triggers. Is there a way to program it to act in a way if it senses movement, but the button above walks it? Or can I schedule a scene to accomplish this?

I also think that this sensor may not be the best to meet my goal.

I'm not sure how to do that. Thanks.
